A Day of Firsts

Today is a day of firsts for me.  I won my first online giveaway after entering many of them for well over a year.  Thank you Make Life Sweet for drawing my name! I can't wait to receive your patterns in May.

And I joined my first online quilt-a-long sponsored by Jaybird Quilts.

I'm pulling a jelly roll and layer cake from my stash The Caroler from Moda.  This is also a first because my quilts up to now have been from fabric scraps from other sewing projects, yardage fabric, one charm quilt, and a few fat quarters. This will be my first time to cut into a jelly roll AND a layer cake.  

The jelly rolls are so pretty and nice and neat rolled up.  I've dreamed and awed over projects that I could use it for.  Somehow they just aren't as nice as that rolled up jelly roll.

And finally, this is the first time to work with hexagons.  I'm uber excited about starting a new quilt! I'm up for the challenge.  

Just not quite sure about cutting into my jelly roll.  : O
